Actually, the moment you talk to the PMU chip directly, you can cause
a poweroff problem. The hardware has a watchdog style setup where it
will shutdown if it doesn't get the communication between the OS and
the PMU chip that it expects. It's been a big problem with trying to
get Linux working on older m68k based PowerBooks.
